Queen Elizabeth's Grammar School Horncastle

U6 geography students

U6 Geographers took part in a field trip to Lincoln on Tuesday 26th September to identify changes to the city and differences between residential areas. This field work was part of the students' Changing Places topic. During the day the students were given presentations by a representative of 'Visit Lincoln' and by a local resident, which were kindly hosted in the Usher Art Gallery's education room.

Anderby Creek sand dunes and terrain encountered

On Wednesday 13th September a group of 60 Year 11 GCSE geographers accompanied by parent helpers, 6th Formers and teachers headed out to Anderby Creek to conduct fieldwork on the sand dunes. Despite Storm Aileen having blown through the county overnight the weather was kind to us, with even the sun making an appearance during the day. The students worked admirably through the challenges that the vegetation and environment provided, with the knowledge that once all the fieldwork data was collected they could then head to the beach cafe for chips and ice cream!

Members of staff were recognised for their continuous service at the school. Chair of Governors, Mr Bennett, made presentations to Ann Devereux, 25 years; Pam Sutton, 35 years; Jane Hastings, 25 years and Heather Payne, 25 years.
